I spent the days leading up to the tour pressing CDs of my Clown Of God show, so that I would have some to sell as I traveled. The music was available as a free download on NoiseTrade for all of March and through April 11. It's too late now to download the music, but you can still stream the entire soundtrack on YouTube. Here's the finale video.
The Clown Of God soundtrack was replaced on NoiseTrade by a new album, Live At Occupy Raleigh! << click the link to download this new album for FREE (or leave a tip!) The songs were recorded on video at Occupy Raleigh, on December 4, 2011. I pulled the audio and mastered it a bit to throw it up on NoiseTrade. Please download and enjoy! Here's the track list of all original music:
- Sing At The Top Of Your Lungs
- Why Lie, I Want A Beer
- Vagrants & Vagabonds, Outlaws & Thieves
- Everything I Ever Needed To Say (In 17 Syllables)
- Four Women (And One Child)
I've written a couple of new entries. Check out the latest on the Matt 6:24 blog, a post about my final task at my last apartment: Freegan Origami. And a blog on the Kitchen Sink blog about my Heights church community, how they launched me #ontheroad with their generosity, hospitality, and all-around awesomeness.
EXACTLY one year ago today I posted a new poem, inspired by Isaiah 40:8 and Matthew 6:28-30. I've reworked it a bit so that it has rhyme and meter. It will almost certainly be set to music and included on my first full-length album, Simple Songs For Simple Living, to be recorded this summer. Check it:
God clothes all the lilies,
though they will one day fall.
So I, a humble sunflower,
will stand to heed the call -
to set my gaze upon the Son
as I ponder my fate -
so when beneath the pall I'll know
ever unclouded grace.
